It’s no secret that the authorities are trying to crack down on wreckless and irresponsible driving habits. According to the BBC, “In 2015 – the latest year for which figures are available – 22 people were killed and 99 seriously injured in accidents where a driver was using their phone”. So it’s no wonder that it’s time to change a habit that has crept in causing major upset on our roads, and serious consequence to our families and loved ones.
As of 1 March, penalties for using a phone at the wheel double to six points and a £200 fine. New drivers who get six points or more must retake their practical and theory tests. More experienced drivers can be banned if they get 12 points in three years. It is serious – and it’s time to become vigilant.
